Statement on Brexit

Now that Article 50 has been invoked and the plan for Brexit is being drawn up, the relationship between the UK and Europe will doubtless change.

Whatever the practicalities of the agreement and the content of the debate, the AGMS is politically neutral. We remain committed to encouraging mutual exchange of knowledge between the UK and Germany. The aims have always been to foster relationships between medical professionals from our member countries and encourage shared learning. The society grew from the aftermath of a post-war Europe and, whilst small, has thrived and survived during the years before the EEC and in the post-Maastricht era. We hope to continue to grow and to hold annual conferences in our member countries. We also hope to foster an environment where people from the UK and Germany are enabled to undertake electives and exchanges in the sister country and to migrate for work purposes.
